For people with a gerontopsychiatric illness who wish to remain in their familiar home environment, we coordinate medical, social and nursing care services. This is done primarily in the context of home visits.
Call us if you are concerned about the changing behavior of a relative or neighbor.
Caring relatives often feel left alone with their worries and find little recognition and support among their friends and acquaintances.
The discussion group enables an exchange with other affected persons about feelings of grief, helplessness, shame and anger. In addition, there is also an exchange of necessary information in connection with the exhausting care of people with dementia.
The group meets on a fortnightly basis over 10 dates. It is designed to have regular attendance if possible. Participants bring a willingness to share their concerns, fears and distressing feelings with other family members. The groups are led by Dorothee Humperdinck and Gabi Schöttke and take place on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons.
